It's Sketchy!

I have been wanting to try sketchy free motion applique for so long now. I first saw it here. I needed to make something that I could finish the same day. So I decided to cut into some precious scraps of Flea Market Fancy that Kristine so sweetly gave to me. I made this mini with them. I got big oooh's and ahhh's and "I love it"'s, so that was good.

I then went on to make this little birdie family.

And here is case for an I Pod Touch. This is the front. It's a bit wonky, I was sewing it at 2 am with out a plan, just cutting and sewing. So that happens sometimes.

This is the back. I quilted it with swirls. Can't really see it in the picture though.

A matching sun glasses case. (front)

and back. They have been getting good use since I made them. That's why they don't look nice and crisp. I'm glad!

So go give it a try. It's loads of fun. Betcha can't make just one!

* filmstrip tutorial coming...this week I hope*
